Over the last three years Will has developed quite the collection of DVDs. As you can see from the “before” picture his collections has outgrown the basket. My inspiration for this project came from Jen at iheartorganizing. I can’t believe the difference between the before and after! I have opened up a lot of space and relieved a bunch of clutter!
DVD cases are big and bulky for the small contents they hold. Since we don’t have cable at our house DVDs and Netflix keep us and our three-year-old entertained when nothing is on. I was looking for a way to consolidate the small contents without the bulk and clutter. The hardest part was finding the cube organizer with the clear sleeves. After searching many stores, I had a lucky find at ShopKo one day. It was the only one left — on clearance — even better!
irst, I spread out all Will’s DVDs on the table and organized them by character (Bob the Builder, Barney, Thomas, etc.). My goal was to fit all of those into that cube-shaped container at the corner of the table.
Each sleeve holds two DVDs — one in the front and one in the back.
sleeve is numbered and has a space where you can write in the DVD title. You could make a corresponding list of the numbered DVDs you could reference. I haven’t done the numbered list yet. I figured if I put them somewhat in alphabetical order, it shouldn’t be a problem to find the movie we were looking for.
There is the final project — cute storage — less bulk — less clutter! This container has a pull-out drawer which makes it easy to access the DVD you are looking for. I was able to pack up the DVD cases and tuck them away in case we want to sell them one day.
Happy Organizing to you!
